Good water heater

Availability and brand was the key
My old water heater started leaking out of the top. Luckily, I went in my garage to look for something and saw the water everywhere. Never had a drain pan when I bought the house. I immediately got on HomeDepot.com to see what was available and Rheem had one to foot the bill. It was actually a few inches taller than the original which had me worried because the supply lines were coming in from the sidewall behind the location of the heater. The existing hot return line was good but the cold water supply had to have a very tight radius to meet the inlet on the WH. This thing is heavy, about 170 lbs., and I was doing this by myself. Had to get it onto a 2 ft. AFF pedestal and inside the new drain pan. It was very easy to light. Still going strong for the last month and I think it has a 12 year warranty.

I contact Reheem and they mail the replacement part, gas control unit, which is where the pilot button sits. Plumbers charging me the same amount I paid for unit to install new part!!! Do not buy . You have been warned.

        Easy installation, great value, love the 6 year warranty! This is the 2nd 40-gallon Rheem I have purchased: an electric for home in Phoenix and gas for home in Vegas. Both are working great. I have to turn the heat setting almost all the way down because it works so well.
